Fleece Blankets with Crochet Edging

I discovered a new favorite project!

Adding a crocheted edge to a fleece blanket is quick, easy, cheap, and I love the results!  It would make a perfect baby shower gift!

Typically I have seen these done with funky bright printed fleece but I wanted a more classic look so I went with white and grey and I love it. 

There are a bunch of tutorials online. I went with a bigger piece of fleece (this was about 40 by 60 inches). I did use a skip rotary blade which made making the holes really easy. 

I can't wait to make more of these.

Happy Father's Day!

Happy Father's day to all the amazing dads out there!!!  I am blessed to know some of the best of them. 

My dad is fun, caring, and super cool - we are Pops's #1 fans around here!

B is such a great father and husband - there is no one better out there!

I love you two!

This morning we ran a family 5k (Chase's first one)!  

He did great and I am so proud of him (minus the post run meltdown of course...)

Hopefully there will be more runs in our future...

Wall Quilt

I finally finished a little wall quilt I have been working on. You can't really see the stitching well in the photo but I tried doing a bit more free motion quilting on this one. I am trying to learn new patterns.

Hello summer!

It is officially summer!  I can't believe Chase is going to be in Third grade next year!  He is getting so big. We went to see Tomorrowland to celebrate the beginning of summer (and we got stuck in a crazy rainstorm on the way home).

So proud of my sweet boy!

FroYo 5K - Highlands Ranch

Chase has been interested in trying a 5K race and I think I found the perfect one...

Nothing like a race that comes with a medal and cup of FroYo at the end!

Guess we better get jogging.
